A water capsule you can drink

Screen Shot 2017-04-14 at 10.32.28 PM

Plastic bottles make it easy to transport water, but it takes energy to make the bottles. When you’re done with your drink, it takes more energy to unmake the bottle, as plastics won’t fully degrade on their own. Now a startup called Skipping Rock Labs thinks we can just skip plastic bottles entirely. It has developed a capsule called “Ooho!” for transporting water that is not only biodegradable, it’s edible. https://www.extremetech.com/extreme/247672-seaweed-based-water-pouch-aims-end-need-plastic-bottles

Zero- packaging shops avoid plastic waste

Zero-packaging shops, sometimes known as zero-waste grocery stores, allow customers to bring and refill their own containers. They offer food products (cereals, pasta, oils) and even household products (soap, dishwashing powder). You simply bring your own jars and containers and buy as little or as much as you need. These new businesses demonstrate how products can be offered without packaging. In doing so they provide both environmental and economic benefits. www.sbs.com.au/news/zero-packaging-stores-show-we-can-kick-our-plastic-addiction

A tax on sugary drinks to improve health

IMG_2484

New modelling in a study published in the latest Nutrients journal shows a 30 per cent reduction in kilojoules in all sugar-sweetened drinks would not only reverse Australia’s obesity crisis, but drastically reduce the number of people succumbing to obesity-related diseases such as stroke, diabetes and kidney cancer. Two-thirds of Australian adults and one in four children are overweight or obese, according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics. In the US Boulder in Colorado, four cities in California (San Francisco, Oakland, Albany and Berkeley), Seattle and Philadelphia have managed to introduce a tax on soft drinks. Philladelphia’s proceeds go directly into an educational fund paying for pre-kindergarten and community schools leading to heavy support for the tax by families. http://www.opc.org.au/

An apple that doesn’t turn brown

CSIRO-apples (1)

This month, a special kind of apple slice will go on sale at select US supermarkets and, thanks to CSIRO research, these apples won’t turn brown when they’re cut, bitten, or bruised. Arctic® apples have been developed by an innovative Canadian biotech company and their first product will be bags of fresh non-browning Arctic® Golden apple slices. While there are other sliced apple products already on the market, these are often coated with vitamin C and calcium to prevent browning and to preserve crispness, and this can change their taste. https://blog.csiro.au/apples-no-longer-cruising-for-a-bruising/
